HSS Professional Learning & Curriculum Resources

Opportunities for educators and resources that focus on effective implementation of the state content standards.

Successful implementation of the content standards, curriculum development, and instruction depend on teacher preparation and on long-term professional learning and access to high quality resources.

Professional Development and Resources for the History–Social Science Curriculum Framework — Assembly Bill 97 (2017)

Assembly Bill 97 (2017) allocated funding to provide professional development and resources for teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals on the History–Social Science (HSS) Framework, including but not limited to Armenian Genocide; labor; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans; and civic education components of the HSS Framework. Additionally, an online repository of resources will be made available to support the implementation of the HSS Framework.
